Mine are Don Sutton, Bill Mazeroski, Phil Niekro, and the aforementioned Jack Morris.

Yeah, I'm a Dodgers fan but Sutton is another of those endurance guys that I don't think deserves it. Not sure about Niekro, though - he might be one where longevity and quality combine to make him hall-worthy. He had 4 seasons at or over 6 fWAR (8.6 in 1978!) and another 4 between 4 and 6. One guy I would add to the least deserving list: Catfish Hunter. His 10 best seasons: average WAR of less than 3.6.

I'm not one of those guys, but fair point. Maybe being one of the best pitchers of a given era ought to be good enough. I get that some guys still think wins have individual value and think that longevity counts. That career stats might be good enough (I'll bet Sutton is one of those guys - that's how he got in). As I alluded to in another post, maybe there's a point where quality and longevity merge and a player has HOF credentials because, while not dominant, he had good enough quality play for such a long time that you have to let him in. Not sure I'd agree Morris was at that level but I'd listen to the argument.

I completely get WHY Morris got in - I just don't agree. And as I pointed out in an earlier post: He's definitely not the least deserving guy in the Hall.

Can you see the Morris-doesn't-belong argument? Can you be "half way objective" about it?

I can see the Morris doesn't belong arguement definitely. It's one of those where I think it's a pretty close call either way.... But there are some who with Morris want to make it seem like oh there goes the neighborhood with the HOF like it's an atrocity against all baseball kind. And that I find totally a joke.

Hey Moron, that part about the harassment and BYU was a joke. Sheesh, you buy them books and all they do is look at the pictures.
